Now That I’ M Fifty (Short Stories by Women)
Now That I’ M Fifty (Short Stories by Women)
Description
Back of the Book

Fifty! Half a century of your life has vanished, leaving only patches of memory, some brightly colored and joyous, others just blurred images. Now that I’m Fifty is a collection of stories about women at the 50 milestone. Some are looking back, wondering what to do about their spreading behinds; others are getting ready to fly out into the dangerous world, leaving their safe and secure homes.

These stories are about journeys that begin at fifty, either within oneself or without, in the big bad world. One woman deals with a broken marriage by learning how to salsa, another begins seeing things, while a third finds a new friendship with a stranger in a garden and cannot stop herself from thinking the unthinkable. A holiday in Thailand goes shockingly wrong; a sudden death gives a new lease of life. Ordinary, everyday things are different when you’re fifty and time is running out. Here are stories about women at fifty, not young but not old, either!

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
